Gradient Controller – After Effects Tutorial



In this After Effects motion graphic tutorial we are going to be taking a look at how to do get a radial scaling effect in after effects using a Gradient Controller. This technique uses expressions to allow for a gradient ramp to control the scale. Although this may seem easy and simple, there are a lot of really great layer controls available.

x = thisComp.layer(“Gradient”).sampleImage(transform.position, [.5,.5]/2, true, time)[0];

Editor’s Note:
Radial scale in after effects utilize a gradient to control the scale on dependent layers. How to setup and use a gradient in after effects is essential for the use of an advanced shape or object scale system. We will show you the easy way to produce a gradient and how to use that gradient to control the scale in this after effects scale tutorial. Learning how to scale in ae is important, but learning how to use a scale controller in after effects give you infinity more control. Keep on using the scale feature and I hope you learned a thing or two from this ae scale tutorial. Thanks!
